GSM Arena side by side comparisontbh neither of them appeal to me for that amount of cash. The Oneplus 5T is still using a 1080p screen? That's the same resolution my OnePlus One has (with the same 480dpi) except that's 5 or 6 generations old and Oneplus haven't thought to upgrade it since 2012? That's pretty weak. Google are primarily an advertisement and analytics agency, not a hardware or even software specialist (Chrome and Chrome OS being the notable exceptions) so the fact their first solo venture into the Android market is nothing special doesn't surprise me. I'd expect it'll get updates for as long as you have the phone and will end up with thousands of custom ROMs available to flash. Much the same as the OP5T will/already has. If I had to choose one it would be a flip of the coin. There's almost nothing that stands out separating one from the other. Nothing that makes either of them stand out from thousands of other phones with smaller price tags too though.


Take some photos with a Pixel 2 then compare to a Oneplus 5t. Try some low light pics too and then we can have this chat where you admit you are totally wrong.

Got mine today and it's a bit disappointing. Basic commands seem impossible. Something like 'help me find my phone' and she doesn't have a clue. 'make my phone ring' and it rings my phone.

No support for Netflix on android TV too which is ridiculous.

If I add something on a shopping list, you cannot remove anything. You have to do it on your phone.

Something like 'tell me what attractions are nearby' yields two options for the WHOLE of London.

Some of the commands listed in the app just do not work.

Underwhelmed.

Yup I spent an hour on live chat to google going round in circles telling me to change this and that. I had to explain that I couldn't because the service Google has selected limits me to change the day and that's it. But yes I was surprised that Google, as the sender, didn't have any means to contact UKMail directly.
I taped yesterdays missed delivery card to my front door with the leave with neighbour or safe place options (which aren't valid on that delivery service) circled many times over and it looks like the driver got the hint as it's been delivered somewhere.

You would only need to get this app if your local library uses it to loan ebooks to you. It's not the slickest app around but I've always put it down to a combination of tight council spending/greedy app developers and platforms/DRM to the max for publishers.
Basically - only use if it you have no choice and 'free legal ebooks > crappy app'.

I availed myself of the eGlobal iPad at £260 - a move to the dark side for me. After three years of a Samsung tablet I have to say, the iPad is sheer brilliance.

Hello , I am using pixel c 64 GB tablet and am really pleased with the tablet. I bought when it first came out with the developer code listed on hotukdeals. I really hope it's not the last update for this tablet. I don't whether it's a good price or not buts it's still a great tablet.

Bought this for £400 last year for my son. Over the year it has proved to be a brilliant tablet. Fast, great screen, excellent sound, immense battery, very stable & superb build quality. No WiFi issues for us. This got OREO a few months back. Still easily one of the best Android tablet around and at this price scorching.

i was referring to the 128gb model as the 32gb is just redundant imo, hence them going for 64gb as standard now,

I couldn't find any in stock from retailers as it's discontinued but found a seller on gumtree who had a brand new warranty replacement for £400.
HOWEVER after using it and testing the camera, the lens was making a clicking/snapping noise when in use and you can actually hear the lens screeching during video records. After googling it was a issue some people have had some worse than others.

Got a warranty replacement refurbished (as new ones no longer in stock by google ) last week testing the camera first thing found the camera fails to auto focus on objects withing say 2 ft, googling it found it's also a known issue (and no i had no case to interfere with it ) and now waiting for my 3rd handset.

Be sure to thoroughly test it if you decide to buy!

I know it's pricey for how it appears on paper, but if you've ever used a …I know it's pricey for how it appears on paper, but if you've ever used a clean google/nexus device (I had a nexus 5 for 4 years or so) where it's minimal, fast, clean, simple, vanilla and fully featured, you'll understand why this will sell. No it doesn't have a ridiculous screen, 6gb of Ram, a crazy big removable battery or a microSDcard slot, ip68 protection, or a headphone jack but the experience as a whole I expect will be a lot nicer and better than some of the chinese offerings at cheaper prices.My current oneplus3 is technically a very capable phone, but there's just no charm to it. It's pretty mundane. The software works fine but little quirps and bugs annoy me, it's pretty heavy, a bit big for my hands and the camera sucks. The loudspeaker also sucks.It was still £400 or so pound. The extra £150 (i'm including value of the home mini, and the £10TCB that should track) is more than worth it for me, as long as it provides me with the great experience my nexus 5 did for so long.Also, bluetooth audio isn't THAT bad. My ankers work fine for gym use and i'm happy to use them elsewhere too. I'm not an audiophile though so maybe i'm massively wrong.It's each to their own. It's a fair bit cheaper than the latest iPhone, and a fair bit cheaper again than the fancy Samsung notes etc. (I'm talking Pixel 2 here, not the XL)I had the Samsung Galaxy S (the original) many years ago and it lastest me a LONG time, but only because of me flashing roms and rooting etc. and that malarkey. Hardware wise it was fine but touchwizz is absolutely horrible. It's basically for children in my eyes. I have colleagues and friends with S7 and S8 etc. and it's still the same. Horrible.Again, these are all my opinions. I just know that I kinda wanted the pixel last year but went for a oneplus3 instead. One year later I've decided to just do it properly and i'll be selling the oneplus once i've confirmed I get along with the pixel okay.


Totally agree!

I agree that you may get it quicker through CPW, but I wouldn't order through them. I got my Pixel from CPW (on release) and when I had a warranty problem, it meant that I had to send my phone to Google, wait 3 weeks, and then receive my replacement. This is the case with any 3rd part re-seller (Including the carriers)

If, on the other hand, you order through the Google store, should you need to raise a warranty request, first, they send you a new phone, and then you send your old/broken one back - a much simpler and less stressful way to deal with warranty provlems.

Well worth the extra wait IMO.

Ice cold. Here's why.

I picked this tablet up at £379 last Christmas (Yes, the 64GB model). At the time, it was a decent deal. The same price today is hilariously overpriced, and £404 is even worse. Given the tech that resides in the 2017 32GB iPad, this tablet is beaten in every way. Eight months have gone by since I bought this for £379. £300 is where this tablet should be priced right now.

Is anybody able to confirm this? What's annoying me at the moment is the incessent insistence i sign up to a default music provider for which there are two choices, Google play (with 6 month free trial) or premium Spotify. I want neither but it/she doesn't appear to understand that. Therefore mine might be going back.



Bit of a downer, amazon echo seems to only accept mp3s when my music is in flac

Might be one way to distinguish between the 2 rivals

You can upload some of your own music, and even more for a charge; Amazon Music Unlimited is £3.99/month if you have an Echo Dot (or Echo), and it works as a Bluetooth speaker (for your phone etc) or it can connect with another speaker. Alarms & timers are simple to use, albeit her knowledge base can't match Google. She'll be getting an intercom system soon, and new stuff gets added regularly. Plus you get buy 4 get 1 free offers.I'd love to get a Google Home, but I can't justify the price tag, especially if you want them in a few rooms. Google really needs a cheaper version too.

Google Pixel C 64GB Tablet £379 thats £100 off. The 32GB is still full price from Google Store. Also £50 on Pixel C Keyboard

FFS. Google has sent me a 'new' pixel with 2 dead LEDs on the back. This 'deal' is becoming quite annoying.

[Update] Google are dealing with it as expected. This is why I buy from Google directly. I cannot imagine how much piddling about I'd have had if I got this from Currys and the same thing happened.

Tablet came with marsmallow or nougat? Thanks.



Just to confirm, the tablet arrived with Marshmallow, but upgraded straight to 7.1.1 before I could sign in. It also jumps directly to the December security patch.

No heat issues so far.

It almost certainly will arrive with Marshmallow out of the box, but it upgrades to Nougat before you even get to sign in.

I can't comment extensively on heat issues as mine had a dead pixel on arrival. It is already back in its box with a new one on its way. I can say that I had updated the software before noticing the dead pixel, and I experienced no heat at all from it even while it was in a case.
